Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamine, is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally found in some foods. Due to limited dietary intake, insufficiency or deficiency is relatively common(1). Those who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet are more likely to be deficient as Vitamin B12 is mainly found in animal-based products.
The symptoms and severity of symptoms vary between individuals but the main symptoms associated with vitamin B12 deficiency are:
The vitamin B12 injection is available in the UK as Hydroxocobalamin 1000mcg/1ml intramuscular injection. The injection is given in the upper arm just below the shoulder (deltoid muscle) by a fully-trained pharmacist or a pharmacy technician. The injection is given once your online consultation has been reviewed and authorised by one of our doctors/prescribers.
If you are unwell on the day of your appointment or the pharmacist finds that the b12 injection is not appropriate through this service, they will either reschedule your appointment or sign-post you to another service such as your GP, NHS 111 or the A&E.
Overall, the vitamin B12 injection is very safe. It has been used for decades for the treatment of Vitamin B12 deficiency. Like all medicines, some people may experience a few side effects such as pain, swelling, redness or bruising of the injection site. These side effects will usually resolve within a few days. In much rarer cases, you might experience headaches, itching or nausea. If these symptoms do not improve or worsen, refer to your GP or call 111.
Vitamin B12 is not synthesized by our bodies. The main source of Vitamin B12 is animal-based foods such as fish, meat, milk and other dairy products. Those following a vegan or vegetarian diet can become deficient in Vitamin B12.
